If you could travel anywhere you wanted, where would you go? Draw your dreams with the help of this easy, step-by-step jet plane drawing guide.
The body of the plane is called a fuselage, and wings extend from it. The rectangle on the side is the plane's door, and the darkened squares are windows. The tail has small wings called stabilizers.

There are also cylinder-shaped jet engines on the wings. Other aircraft use similar engines - check out this fighter jet drawing for an example.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Plane
How to Draw a Great Looking Plane for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - Step 1
1. Begin the cartoon plane outline by drawing a long curved line. This will become the top of the fuselage or body of the airplane.

3. Draw a curved rectangle just above the nose of the plane. This is the windshield of the cockpit. Then, begin drawing a line of small squares down the side of the plane. You can use a ruler to make sure they are in a straight line.
About one-third of the way down the plane, draw a rectangle with rounded corners. This is the door of the plane.
